Google Podcasts Manager to the Rescue? EHHHHHH (Podcasting Tools and Tips)

Google Podcasts Manager has just come out of beta! I've had early access to it for a couple weeks now, and in this video I'd like to share some very honest thoughts about it with you.

If you're a podcaster, you know that stats and analytics for our podcasts are very poor. Unlike YouTube, we have very little access to anything beyond basic download and play numbers, and a little bit about device use and demographics.

Here comes Google to the rescue. There's been a lot of hype about Google Podcasts Manager, but right now, it's not even close. In fact, it doesn't tell us anything new yet. In this video, you'll hear what exactly is lacking, and where there are opportunities for Google to support us podcasters, and my entire wishlist of things I'd like to see.

      Thanks for the tips Pat, maybe they’ll get what you want on the next iteration.

        I’m hoping so. If it’s anything like Google’s other products then it should continually improve time and time again. I wish I had access to their roadmap! Maybe I’m just jaded from Apple Podcasts taking so long to move on anything for us.

      I find that Spotify has some of the best analytics and data for podcasts

      Jeeze, its such a let down. Seriously Google. I get more off Spotify and Chartable.
